Sandvik launches battery-powered dozer
Introducing Sandvik LZ101LE, the new battery-powered dozer for low-seam operations.
The new battery-powered Sandvik LZ101LE dozer improves underground working environments, eliminating exposure to emissions hazardous to miners’ health.
Sandvik LZ101LE has a push capacity of up to four tonnes and is remotely operated, enabling operators to work at a safe distance away from hazardous, unsupported areas of the mine.
Additionally, the battery power pack is mounted on the machine, reducing the risk of running over cables. Sandvik LZ101LE is an important addition to the supplier’s low-profile portfolio. With improved safety, productivity and minimized ore dilution, Sandvik low-profile drill rigs are an ideal choice for working in tabular ore bodies, such as platinum and chrome mines.
These rigs have been designed for development, rock support and production drilling in sections as low as 1.7 metres with optimum drilling coverage and performance, offering customers safer productivity and reliability and reduced operating costs.
